on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
this evening. the president is sending the first lady there today and joe biden on thursday. i want to put up a quote from my friend rory cooper who said "the des moines register" enl dorised carter, mondale, gore and couldn't endorse another four years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scien
vice president joe biden and governor romney have canceled events scheduled in virginia beach. >>> we have live coverage across the east coast for you. the weather channel's julie martin is live in north carolina. nbc's al roker and the weather channel stephanie abrams are in delaware. we begin with nbc meteorologist dylan dryer. dylan, we had this new advisory released just about an hour ago. what's the news in it? >> the news is there haven't been too many changes. it is still a hurricane one category at this time. but we are just noticing the track budges ever so slightly with the newer updates. now instead of a direct hit right near atlantic city, new jersey, instead now it is down into delaware. look at the watches and warnings all across the eastern seaboard. obviously most out over the water but included in that northeastern south carolina, the east coast of north carolina, and eventually those will be extended up into virginia and new jersey as well. so winds are at 75 miles per hour, but notice the path of the storm still moving north-northeast at now 9 miles per hour. it sti
. host: how many timesguest: presn here six times this year. mitt romney has been here 6. joe biden has been here once. we have seen a lot of, many visits from michelle obama. jill biden then work with the reds in colorado springs. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. >> bill clinton could be coming to your state. an official says bill clinton is scheduled to campaign for the president today. in colorado. the president was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: and we expect we will see, pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, both candidates later in the week. governor mitt romney was here last week in the rally at but rocks that drew 9000 people. thousands were turned away. the following day, president obama held a rally in denver and drew crowds of up to 16,000. the governor this because deserve an amphitheater that has the capacity of 18,000. the president and his campaign were looking to go to boulder to hold a rally. they are try to turn out a lot of voters for the optics. >> these are great stories about real people in a
on campaigns. both vice president biden and romney canceled campaigns in virginia beach this sunday. police and emergency crews are staying focused on the storm. >> first lady michelle obama canceled a campaign rally in new hampshire. that was scheduled for next week at the university of new hampshire campus in durham. the campus is closing because of this storm. let's get to the weather center. sandy currently sitting in the atlantic as it makes a slow crawl toward the east coast. meteorologist alexandra steele is back. if we're seeing it slow right now, alexandra, that can't be good once it hits land. >> it is moving north about 10 miles per hour, so it could be a lot slower. but the breadth and depth and scope of this thing, from tens of millions being impacted, from the airports, all the way to the power outages will be intense. so this is it. hurricane sandy, again, at the 8:00 a.m. advisory, aircraft reconnaissance found hurricane force winds, so it was upgraded. the entire frame has the swath of this and expansiveness. we're talking 450 miles out from the center we see tropical storm
in youngstown, ohio, for tomorrow. president clinton and vice president biden will still be there. the president is not going to be there. he has an event tomorrow morning in florida but he's not going to ohio. he's going back to the white house. as for mitt romney, we're watching his campaign very closely. he has a campaign event here in ohio tomorrow morning after this event with paul ryan in a few minutes. and then he goes to wisconsin and iowa, two states that should be protected from hurricane sandy for the time being. but, don, i have to tell you, a lot of this is very interesting to watch because we're all sort of wondering how is this hurricane going to affect the race? which candidate will it affect more? will it affect the president because it will be taking him off the campaign trail. he won't be able to campaign quite as much. or will it make him perhaps appear more presidential because he'll be looking at storm damage and that sort of thing? the romney campaign was asked about that earlier today. they did not want to speculate but the obama campaign is also concerned about it becaus
chief economist for vice president joe biden, also an msnbc contributor. jared, as we look over these estimates and they're really rough now in the very beginning. >> very rough. >> sandy could cost when it's all said and done, the total $20 billion or more. exceeding the damage certainly from irene last year which was about 12 to $16 billion. meantime moody's an lytics estimate economic losses will total $10 billion a day, lost wages, production, sales for businesses. do you think that estimate is on target? >> yeah, i think that estimate is on target but i believe moody's said they're not going to alter their estimate for gdp in the fourth quarter because some of this will be made up and also some of this stuff that gets destroyed you have to put people to work to rebuild it. that actually adds to gross domestic product. it subtracts from the net but adds to the growth. >> one thing i'm being told in my ear, we have an updated death toll i want to pass along to everyone. we now have 27 -- 29, excuse me, 29 confirmed deaths. again, we started this hour it was 18. so the numbers
and vice president biden will be there today as well. >>> romney is not the only one back on the campaign trail, as we point out. the vice president is, paul ryan as well as bill clinton. new polls giving a slight edge to the president. the power panel will weigh in on this in just a second. >>> plus, you can't forget this dangling crane, we've show you the images, that still happenings perilously above new york city. still a very dangerous situation. we'll bring you up to speed on what's being done to get that down safely. if you have pictures from the storm, tweet them to us, include the hash tag msnbc pics. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. and i was told to call my next of kin. at 33 years old, i was having a heart attack. now i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.

. meanwhile vice president joe biden makes two stops in wisconsin. congressman paul ryan begins his day in colorado before flying back to the midwest for a rally in cedar falls, iowa. then he joins romney in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it will be interesting to see where his voice is by 8:00 tonight. in the frenetic final days both candidates are giving positive pitches and warnings as to what will happen if the other guy is voted in. and bolder last night the president argued for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bail out only 10% of the country approved of
on the storm. let me play for you what joe biden said in new hampshire yesterday. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is have the cam taken get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and people's health and property being saved here. >> dave wiegel, could this make-or-break his presidency? >> i think you're going to see a lot of wind breakers and north face jackets and fewer blazers and ties for a couple of days as he go it to these fema centers and does what he can, which is not a lot. he can stop in the path of the storm. the problem for obama that i see, and it's hard to ascertain for a couple of days how this affects him, is this a ground game campaign. they said this for a year. they're right. this campaign wins if it gets out votes at a more effective high rate than the romney campaign does. how does that change it if power goes out in places where people manage phone calms and charging up ipads door to door. that is what i think would have people worried. more than where the president physically can campaign. how much money do they pu
back to the white house and deal with the storm. that left vice president joe biden and former president bill clinton to go to ohio. >> youngstown, ohio. >> bill: of course, youngstown ohio. the vice president saying hey he's sorry he's not here but he's on it. >> he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but you know, he's doing the job the president should be doing. [ cheering ] >> bill: absolutely. and former president bill clinton said i told barack you go back and get to work. >> goat up this morning and called me. he said i gotta go back. this storm is getting out of hand. i said mr. president, that is the right call. [ cheering ] >> bill: that's just what i would have done. all right. in new jersey, which was really hammered by hurricane sandy congressman frank pallone will join us here at the top of the hour. david shuster is in new york. current tv's david shuster will give us the report from lower manhattan. judd legum from think progress will be along as well to talk
things to watch tonight and through the weekend, first lady, michelle obama, joe biden, also big ohio presence this weekend. president clinton on the democratic side doing a lot of campaigning. and tonight in ohio near cincinnati, romney, ryan, their families, and all their major surrogates, minus chris christie are going to be doing a big rally, john mccain, marco rubio, rob portman, one big rally in ohio and then spreading out. that's going to be a big event. and major surrogate action on both sides, nobody believing anything, as we like to say, on the field. >> and very interesting last thing about romney, two stops in new hampshire within the last three days, which is kind of fascinating given -- i mean, he's closing his campaign in new hampshire, but he's also going there on saturday. interesting that they think that those, what, five or four electoral votes could be really important for them. >> one other big piece of news this morning, president obama picked up the endorsement yesterday of new york city mayor michael bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wro
comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut taxes, you have to come in with good policies which governor romney understand as a business person and und
will be cancelled. but this is also having wider impacts on the campaign. vice president biden had to cancel an event in virginia on saturday. governor romney cancelled events that was planned for tomorrow. i should also say the romney campaign says they are suspending fundraising e-mails in washington, d.c. d.c., in virginia, pennsylvania, north carolina and new jersey. so big impact on politics. >> the romney camp moving its campaigning, paul ryan and mitt romney to ohio over the next couple of days, but there too, they might find themselves in the middle of a whole lot of snow, while that's expected there, while the east coast deals with a lot of wind, rain -- momentarily, maybe about six minutes or so away, we understand the new york mayor of michael bloomberg is expected to have a press conference about the preparations that are under way there. >> let's go to josh levs. >> as we talk about so many moves parts. we're also going to be hearing from the governors of massachusetts and pennsylvania and we'll be bringing you the information that's coming in. everyone you're seeing is in engag
't guarantee first responders will get to them. >> i know we checked with bo biden's office because he was called up in the national guard, he was a major in the national guard, be had active duty in iraq left the campaign in anticipation of this on saturday as a main surrogate, also campaigning with his dad and now he has been called up. how many have been activated in the national guard? >> 300 people so far. we may end up doubling that. we've got a terrific national guard including our attorney general who's just a great public servant here in delaware. they're doing great work. some of them are providing medical support in some of the shelters. we've opened up a number of shelters across the state. have hundreds of people in them now. but they're providing evacuation support as well. >> now, number of routes have been closed. one, of course, a main closure, route 1 between bethanie beach and dewey beach. what about exit strategies for those who have to leave? >> there are as you say, that one, we knew would be closing. actually closing it yesterday morning. and so there are evacuat
their ohio campaigning for tomorrow as well. joe biden also canceled campaigning. how do they handle this and then you've got the image of mitt romney doing what they say is not a campaign event, in the same place they were going to hold a campaign event, they say they're making collections for hurricane storm relief. chris cizilla, first to you, we checked with the red cross, the red cross said they're always grateful for donations, but this is not what they need or want. they always tell people please donate money. we have our own packagers and wholesalers and distribution system and to now get niece canned goods from the romney event in ohio and have to package it, used clothes they have to clean, they can't go directly to victims what they need is donations of blood and donations of money. it does seem like a thinly veiled -- why ohio? why choose ohio? >> right. because the storm is kind of -- >> not in ohio. >> you ask how do you -- how does president obama and mitt romney handle this politically? the answer i think can be summed up in one word delicately. it's a very fine and t
for that. he has done, as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> biden has two solo ral his tomorrow in battleground florida and trying to drum up hispanic turnout telling univision talk show host that he and the president are breaking their neck to get real immigration law. clinton was in minnesota. a state that democrats were supposed to lock upped long ago. he tried to use a superstorm to hit republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming and economical beneficial ways. he said oh, you'll turn back the seas. my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> obama camp is also suddenly spending $650,000 on tv ads in pennsylvania. democratic stronghold with 20 electoral votes. they revealed today going on the air in pennsylvania, the obama campaign sees a bluff. stephanie cutter taking a time-out from the bipartisan kumbaya over the storm to tweet romney decision to go up and p.a. proof positive they can't make the current map work to get to 270. throwing out lifelines to
biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and following on -- host: of one week to go and looking at the momentum in colorado. the numbers are on your screen. with every special one from colorado residents. kathy from pueblo, colorado, an independent scholar. y
? vice president biden is in nor floor. makes two stops there. first sarasota and ocala. it's usually republican country there. all right. how do you get to 270? it's basically what we've been talking about all year long, what states are in play, what are not. today we'll take a deep dive into the battleground map to see whether or not it is getting bigger as we near the finish line and whether it needs to get bigger if romney will win. the campaign says momentum is on their side and they are expanding the maps because they're on a roll and watch out, they could win over 300 electoral votes. the president's campaign says it's all a bluff. romney's campaign started running ads in minnesota and pennsylvania. super pacs up in michigan. ann romney campaigning in michigan. a state the president won by 16 points. not going to this time. as i told you restore our future up there as well. romney campaign released a statement indicating they intend to put real pressure on the president in these states while the obama campaign would like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play
that promise? [applause] we love having mitt romney here. but we like having president obama and joe biden here because they say the darnedest things in virginia, don't they? like joe biden, it's great to be here in north carolina. and then the incredulous remark by president obama that if you have a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen. can you believe that he said that? does that sound like somebody who understands free enterprise and the american dream? fortunately, we have a candidate who does. i'm glad to have followed george allen. he was a great reform governor and he will be a great united states senator to help turn this country around. [applause] i'm so glad to see all you veterans here and all oh of you that understand the coal industry, thank you for coming. and all of you that understand freed new mexico america is not free. for centuries it's taken properties like you to make our -- patriots like you to make our country great. >> my grandfather came in search of the american dream. he worked in a factory in massachusetts and 100 years later his grandson
that one. [applause] tonight's debate between congressman paul ryan and the vice president biden, that should be a lot of fun. check in next week. [applause] i would have to see three is ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. [laughter] that's extremely one sided in every definition of the term because you would not hear whoopi beeping out every response like they did last time ann was on "the view" which is unfair. the entertainment factor aside, ann is one word, "courageous," truly courageous, willing to use her amazing wit to highlight important issues of our day and describe herself as a to lem cyst who stirs the pot. her background prepared her well. she's a lawyer. she graduated from honors from cornell, graduate of university michigan law school, a columnist, author of eight "new york times" best sellers, confirming the ladies of "the view" are the only ones who have not read the books, they can't comment on them. "mugged," that book is insightful and i encourage everybody to read it. permly, after reading it, i felt so unburdened and liberated i'm going to go ahead and get r

's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others, they believe there's a possibility to at a minimum keep the president on the -- having to not just focus on ohio. and if they can distract him away from ohio to play defense in these other places, they can increase their chances. the democrats totally dismiss this, but there's a reality. they're playing defense. >> you can say dismissive, but mike barnicle, the fact that democrats would put their key asset, bill clinton -- >> in pennsylvania. >> in minnesota today, two stops in minnesota today, that's -- that's worrisome for the democrats. >> yeah. if you -- if you're taking one of your principal assets, the president and the vice president frozen now, the key asset not only your principal asset, your key asset, but one really
on with bill clinton? right now, for instance, they were still going to have clinton and biden events in youngstown this was supposed to be the second stop. there was a virginia stop that was going to be today, but this was sort of odd last night when the president left. and you wondered, well, what's he going to say this morning at this campaign event? you know, is he really going to go off on a romnesia riff? you know, so this doesn't surprise me at all. >> hey, chuck, a lot happening this past weekend. >> yeah. >> i don't even know where to start. the one thing, though, that you and i can probably agree on here is, it's hard to pick up trends. you see an ohio newspaper poll, oh, wait, okay. >> yeah. >> mitt romney is now even with the president. boy, the president's in a lot of trouble. and an hour later, "the washington post"/abc poll, wait, romney's down four. an hour later "the des moines register" decides they're going to endorse a republican since nixon. a minnesota poll that shows romney within the margin of error in minnesota. there are no trend lines here, are there? >> wel
's former chief economic adviser -- biden's former chief economic advisor. all of that starting at 8:00 eastern tonight. and now an update on hurricane sandy federal relief efforts. >> you may disconnect at this time. i will turn over the meeting to mr. lars anderson, director of public affairs. >> thank you for joining us. we're going to have three speakers on the call today, craig, and robert parker from the coast guard. each speaker is going to give opening remarks and then we will turn to q&a. we are going to keep it to 30 minutes. please limit yourself with no questions so we can get through as many as possible. let me turn it over to craig. >> now that sandy has transitioned into a post a tropical storm, you are obviously aware of the lot of damage that occurred last night and in the early morning hours due to storm surge and flooding. we see snow conditions, a blizzard conditions in west virginia and extensive power outages. the big update is the state and locals are rapidly working on a rescue operations as well as president obama, last night, after consultations with the gov
president of the united states, joe biden. >> if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry, i'm being told that's not accurate. >> and the number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen. >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already? >>> it is 8:26. i'm laura garcia-cannon. we are following breaking news in san francisco. big delays on muni metro in and out of san francisco right now. we learned that all lines between west portal and embarkadaro are closed. muni is telling riders to ride the s market aboveground if you want to avoid the mess. in addition, b.a.r.t. is honoring muni passes. muni has stopped service this morning. christie smith is on the way to the scene. we will have a live update from the scene. let's check in with traffic. mike. >>> these are the muni metro trains through the montgomery station. it is closed right now because of a deadly accident on the tracks. we are tracking that. the impact on the maps. this is the overview of the city. the montgomery station is closed down. is honoring passes through market. look how far they
'll return to the white house. vice president biden cut short a new hampshire campaign swing diverting to ohio. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is campaigning getting in the way of anything. more important thing is people's safety. >> reporter: tuesday's schedule is in jeopardy. mitt romney cancelled a stop in new hampshire, the president cancelled one in colorado. there's no let up on campaign attacks particularly on the auto bailout. mitt romney released a new ad defending himself. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to the italians who will build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> reporter: john kasich said the bailout impact on ohio has been overstated. >> when you take into account the companies and suppliers you're up 400 jobs. we didn't grow ohio's economy on just one industry. >> but his predecessor pushed back. >> i believe that the table was set by president obama and ohioans recognize that and i think that's why the president is going to win ohio. >> reporter: both campaigns in the wake of sandy have
with former president clinton vice president biden blasted the ad as false. >> chrysler has felt obliged to go public and say there is no truth. they say jeep has no intentions of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. >> reporter: while mitt romney is technically not campaigning today, he is doing a storm relief event, savannah, in the state of ohio. >> chuck, and a lot of folks are asking us this morning, is there a possibility with this widespread power outages that could last days if not weeks, is there a chance the election day itself could be delayed? >> it's very unlikely. look, the presidential election day is something that is set in the constitution. now, states run electrics, and they can decide to postpone if they wanted to. it's happened before in new york city, of course, postponed in new york city elections on 9/11 on the day that it happened. they postponed that. now, that said, what did come up yesterday during the fema calls with craig and state officials was could states get reimbursed for having to, for instance, move voting precincts, get ext
and economic advisor to vice president joe biden. this is one hour and 20 minutes. >> thank you. in 1962, 50 years ago, michael harrington published the other america poverty in the united states. at the time the american economy was in the midst of a golden age of economic prosperity in which a rising tide lifting all boats. since the end of world war to the economy hit the ground rapidly and the wages of most workers had been growing faster than the rate of inflation. at that time there was no measure of poverty. in part because almost no one, academics, journalists or policymakers talked about poverty. harrington's but changed not only the political discourse, but the public policy landscape. on the first page, he wrote there is a familiar america. it has the highest best standard of living the world has ever known. he then went on to say that it does not change the fact that tens of millions of americans are at this very moment named in body and spirit existing at levels beneath those necessary for human decency. a short time later a review article appeared in the new yorker magazine cal
